I tend never to go to Italian places outside of Italy, having been consistently disappointed over time. This place was a nice surprise, as it managed to deliver a reasonably good resemblance of Italian cousine, without faking it too much.
You can find, for example, the Spaghetti Alfredo (sorry to say, never been an Italian dish!), but also some nice touch like seafood prepared in real Italian style.
All in all, a good place to go, especially if you're staying in the hotel where the restaurant is hosted.

We came here as part of a group tour (Caravan) for a buffet. We arrived several minutes before our designated time and tables for our group were ready and the buffet was set up with servers ready for us. We were a party of 6 and the tables were set up as tables of 4. We asked if we can combine two tables instead of sitting at separate tables and they offered to move the tables together, which was very much appreciated!! The waiter came over to offer us strawberry or guava juice. The beef was tender and delicious. The chicken was in a tomato based sauce and was very good. There was an assortment of veggies and salads to choose from. They offered two kinds of dessert. We all were happily satisfied!! We wanted a group photo and our waiter offered to take it for it. I did not eat off the regular menu, but I was very much satisfied with the quality of the food and the service provided! Would recommend!

I spent 5 days in Escazu eating at a different restaurant every night and Pimento was the clear standout. The meal was well prepared and tasted great. I ordered shrimp cocktail off the menu and they prepared it swiftly and it was delicious. Our waiter Fabio was outstanding and he was assisted by Juan Miquel who was also great. They even came to a different restaurant in the same hotel the next night to say hello. Awesome.Totally recommend the place. ask for Fabio to be your server.
